GREENE – Administrators and schools board members from several area districts met for an annual dinner Tuesday evening to recognize recent retirees, laud educational initiatives within the districts and reward the 2015 “School Board Member of the Year.”
Recently Retired DCMO-BOCES Superintendent William Tammaro was applauded for his 32-plus years of dedication and service to the students and school districts under the umbrella of the Chenango campus.
Norwich City School Board member Perry Owen reflected on Tammaro's achievements including his hand in implementing the regions first STEM program and the highly revered Associate Degree Business Program offered to students within the DCMO-BOCES regions of Chenango, Otsego, Delaware and Madison counties. The program offers free access to college degree options thanks to collaborative efforts between the Unatego Central School and Tompkins Cortland Community College.
“As long as [we] continue to put the students first and yourselves second we'll give more opportunities for our students to be globally competitive, which is what they need to be,” said Tammaro.
